WIN: Tickets to see classic musical Fame

Jan 25 2012


GLASWEGIANS should get ready for some Dancin’ On The Sidewalk, because Fame-The Musical is shimmying into town.

Opening in Giffnock’s Eastwood Park Theatre next month, the show is being staged by local group Glasgow Music Theatre.

And we’ve teamed up with our friends at GMT to give away five pairs of tickets to this not-to-be-missed show.

In the spring of 1980 4000 young people applied to New York’s High School for the Performing Arts-only 97 were accepted.

Fame tells the story of the class of ‘84 as they fight to make it to the top in the worl of “PA”.

And GMT are aiming to make the show their own.

Omo Iredia, who plays dancer Tyrone, said:”All too often, Fame is just about the 1980s legwarmers, but our choreographer, Marion Baird, has filled the show with hip-hop and street dance, giving the show a much more realistic feel.

“These kids were copying their heroes on MTV, not sitting in the front row on Broadway.”

West end resident Marelle Sturrock hopes that her leading role as Carmen Diaz will have people remembering her name.

The 24 year old said: “It’s a dream come true.

“Everyone knows the famous theme song ‘I’m Gonna Live Forever’ and I’ve always wanted the chance to perform it, but I never dreamed I’d get to do it outside my own living room.”


For your chance to win a pair of tickets for Fame, just answer the following question.

What year was the original movie version of Fame released?

Then put your answer on a postcard, including day-time telephone number, and send it to Fame Competition, The Glaswegian, Once Central Quay, G3 8DA, by Wednesday, February 1, editor’s decision is final.

Fame is on at Eastwood Park Theatre from Tuesday, February 7 to Saturday, February 11.

Tickets cost £9.50 to £14 and are available from or by calling 577 4970.
